This research paper explores the implications associated with deploying Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies in the domain of migration management for human rights in Canada. The research findings ultimately challenge pre-existing paradigms and contribute to a more balanced discourse, highlighting the intricate link between AI, migration, and human rights.

Drawing insights from Algorithmic Governmentality, Technosolutionism, and Critical Data Studies, the paper examines the extent of their effects on human rights outcomes and governance. This paper utilizes a systematic literature-based review as a research methodology and employs a qualitative, thematic model to conduct a comprehensive review of the research topic.

It argues that the implementation of AI in this context mandates a rigorous investigation into its governance. This is due to the consequences AI produces for individual rights. Despite its numerous potential advantages, a lack of scrutiny and transparency in its deployment poses risks to protecting fundamental rights.

Through the aforementioned theoretical foundation, the paper dissects the partialities and vulnerabilities built into AI-related systems and brings to light the power structures they reinforce. It calls for an equitable approach that champions human rights amidst technological evolution. This is to ensure that AI functions as a catalyst for societal progress, not as an instrument to radically boost state dominance and power.

Summary

This research paper explores the implications associated with deploying Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies in the domain of migration management for human rights in Canada. The research findings ultimately challenge pre-existing paradigms and contribute to a more balanced discourse, highlighting the intricate link between AI, migration, and human rights.
